UWM’s world-class research endeavors are open to students from the start of their undergraduate experience. More than 1,000 UWM undergrads are involved in research projects each year, and hundreds of them receive funding through grants and awards. It’s why UWM was one of only two national recipients of the 2018 Campus-Wide Award for Undergraduate Research Accomplishments. Given by the Council on Undergraduate Research, it recognizes the quality and depth of undergrad research opportunities. Here are just some examples of what UWM undergrads are exploring.
